Law & Order: Criminal Intent Renewal & Casting

Law & Order: CI

There’s been a few bits of news floating around the last couple of days about Law & Order: Criminal Intent.  First off, the series has been renewed by it’s adoptive home, USA, for a ninth season.  The official L&O: CI twitter acct posted this:

No surprise there as USA, like many cable networks, like to stretch their original series out.  Most premiere half the season in late spring or summer, then again in January or so.  It tends to be a bummer when the short season ends, but it’s nice knowing that, instead of having to wait a full year, like some shows, there’s more coming in just a few months.

Other than the renewal, the other news floating aroung, which has yet to be confirmed, is about casting.  Unconfirmed reports from Ausiello are that Julianne Nicholson, who ended last season with a birth, will not be returning post-partum.  Instead, the rumor mill has pegged My Own Worst Enemy‘s Saffron Burrows as a possible partner for Jeff Goldblum.

We admit to being a bit sad by this news.  Nicholson was a great addition to the cast, especially when paired up with Goldblum.  Ausiello also reports that Vincent D’Onofrio and Kathryn Erbe are in talks to return for the next season.  Regarding all these rumors, the L&O: CI twitter account only had one thing to say:

Law & Order: Criminal Intent is tentatively set to return in March 2010 on USA.
